My girl gets about 32 ounces of breast milk each day and a spoonful of peas. That's about it. I'd like her to eat more solids but she's just not interested. I'm not going to force her to eat solids but I would like some ideas on how I can get her to be more interested in eating solids. We already put her in her high chair while we eat and we give her baby spoons, bowls, cups, and plates to play with but she just doesn't care to try the food. What does your 7 month old eat and how much?

My 7 month old drinks about 4 10oz sippy cups of formula, 2 jars of gerber 2nd foods fruit, 1 jar gerber 3rd foods dinner, and 2-3 4oz cups of juice, he also gets yogurts puffs and gerber graduate puffs as a snack 1-2 times a day. We will also let him try things we eat at dinner if it is mushy and healthy, like mashed potatoes, cooked carrots, peas, broccoli and cheese soup. etc. Try starting by giving her 4oz of milk mixed with 2oz of baby food in her bottle with a feeder nipple, after she drinks that try giving her a few bites of the left over food from the jar. That is how I started my son out and now he has a huge appetite. I have told his doctor what he eats and she said he was doing great, and if he didn't want the food he wouldn't eat it.
Even if she acts like she doesn't like something at first, try again sometimes it can take them 3-4 times of eating something to decide that they like it.
